Accrington manager Paul Cook felt his team lost confidence in themselves after conceding the first goal in their 2-0 defeat to Crewe.
Stanley had held the Alex for 81 minutes before Max Clayton scored and, in the last minute, Luke Murphy sealed the win for Steve Davis' side.
Cook admits that he is learning with every game and did feel that Stanley had improved on their performance from the weekend when they were beaten 4-0 by struggling Plymouth. But he will not be looking to take any encouragement from their latest setback which has meant they have not scored in three games.
"You could see the players' shoulders go right down the minute Crewe scored," he said. "You've got to have good belief in the game. When you take a new job the anxiety will spread with each game but from Saturday we improved a hell of a lot."
"I don't take positives. I'm not into this new age. When you get beaten 2-0, I don't think it's a positive and we've lost three games in a week now. We'll have to dust ourselves down before we go to Swindon on Saturday. We conceded at poor times and the late goal kills you."
"When you're not scoring and leaking a goal or two, you ask yourself questions. We're going to try and progress the club and we're not going to beat ourselves up when it's not going our way. I'm learning about the players and I'm learning about the league - it's a little bit new to me."
